In preparation for the meeting, Kiewit will be constructing mockups of the three paver options for Wynkoop Plaza and installing railing samples for the 18th Street Passenger Bridge outside of the DUS construction office (South wing of the historic station in the outdoor seating area). Each will be 10’x10′ with two of mockups having 4″x8″ pavers and another with 6″x12″ pavers.

The mockups and samples will be installed/assembled on Wednesday, Sept. 15 and will remain in place until the end of the month. This will give the public the opportunity to view the options and provide comments.

Denver by the Slice encourages continued public involvement in the project design. The importance of attractive and highly functional public spaces cannot be overlooked. This is our front yard!
